Menopause Home > Pregnenolone Side Effects
Although pregnenolone is a "natural" product, it is not necessarily free of side effects. Pregnenolone can cause problems such as insomnia, headaches, and hair loss. These may not seem serious, but can be a sign of a hormonal imbalance that could lead to more serious problems. Therefore, if you experience any possible side effects, make sure to contact your healthcare provider.
